A month ago I was asked by a close friend to help him out with a home improvement project. He needed to cut some 2x4s at 60-degree angles and didn’t have the right tool for the job. After doing some research, I found that a circular saw is the best tool for the job.
In general, to cut a 60-degree angle with a circular saw, you need to make two cuts. The first cut should be made with the blade at a 45-degree angle. The second cut should be made with the blade at a 15-degree angle.
Keep reading to find out more because, in this article, I’m going to show you how to cut a 60-degree angle with a circular saw.
How To Cut 60-Degree Angle With Circular Saw?
Here are the steps:
Place the circular saw on the work surface with the blade facing up.
Place the material to be cut on the saw table, making sure that it is flush against the fence.
Adjust the angle of the blade to 60 degrees.
Turn on the saw and slowly guide the material through the blade.
Repeat steps 2 through 4, if necessary.
Once the cut is complete, turn off the saw and set it aside until it has cooled down completely and can be handled safely.
Turn off and unplug the saw to avoid accidental starting. Check that the blade is not still turning before touching or handling the tool.

Tips For Cutting 60-Degrees Angle With Circular Saw
When cutting a 60-degree angle with a circular saw, it’s important to use a speed square as a guide. This will help you to make accurate and consistent cuts.
If you’re using the “traditional” method, clamp the speed square to your workpiece and use a pencil to mark the cut line. Then, use your circular saw to make the cut.
If you’re using an advanced method, you can use a compass or circle cutting jig to draw the desired angle on your workpiece. Then, use your circular saw to make the cut.
In this blog post, we have covered how to cut a 60-degree angle with a circular saw. We provided the best practices for cutting angles and some tips on what kind of blade you should use in order to get the desired result. Thanks For Reading
How do I make an angled cut with a circular saw?
There are two ways to make an angled cut with a circular saw. The first way is to use the miter guide on the saw. To do this, you set the angle of the blade to the desired angle, and then line up the piece that you’re cutting with the miter guide on the saw.
The other way is to use a straight edge and adjust the depth of cut so that only a portion of the blade will be cut into the wood. This latter method is not as accurate as using the miter guide, but it can be done if you don’t have a miter guide available.
How do you cut a 60 degree bevel?
There are a few different ways to do it, but the most common way is to use a sliding T-bevel or a combination square. First, mark your desired angle on the edge of your workpiece with a pencil. Then, set the bevel of your T-bevel or combination square to that angle and place the blade against the pencil mark.
Finally, hold the tool firmly against the workpiece and push or pull it towards you until you make contact with the other edge of the workpiece. Saw along this line to create your bevel.
